Zia was always full of emotion, kindness, and wisdom.

She taught me to love my Italian Heritage, but more importantly that it’s ok to be emotional and that it tarnishes nothing from your character, it only keeps you true to yourself. I will hold this lesson with me for the rest of my life.

Gardens, Family, Positivity, Culture, Tradition, and the best food Junction ever had, these are my memories.

Love you forever and always Auntie Rosie.

I am so saddened by the loss of a beloved auntie.
I will always remember her generous spirit and kindness.
Her brilliant smile that could light up a room, and her hugs!

How terrible it is that this pandemic has caused issues with travel between provinces, I am in Nova Scotia and it hurts that I can not be there to say a final farewell to my Zia Rosetta.

RIP, we will meet again

Rosa was as much my mom as my real mom, having loved me from the day her son introduced us. She was an incredible mother in law to me and an amazing and loving grandmother to my daughter Bianca. I was so lucky to have her in my life and to experience unconditional love and support always. Rest In Peace mama Rosa. Love you and miss you forever ♥️

Our deepest condolences. Rosa was the sweetest woman with such a big heart. She was always so kind and welcoming and we were fortunate to enjoy several meals with her over the last 12 years (she was an amazing cook!).
We will sincerely miss her and wish we could have spent more time with her over the past few years.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
